Sculpture Center Opens Two Shows and a New Location


There are several new things going on at the Sculpture Center in University Circle: a pair of new shows, a new location and its first-ever artist-in-residence.

Large-scale installation artist, Cleveland native Julie Schenkelberg, will be assuming that role as she moves into a corner building at 12210 Euclid Avenue, adjacent to The Sculpture Center’s current spaces, which will be replacing its current galleries. The new, 2,200 square-foot gallery provides the space to work at the scale of Schenkelberg’s preferred practice.

“I thought a lot about the transactions and emotions that passed through the building,” she says. “On returning to Cleveland, I had a curiosity about what came before me here. I found the deep history of the space mirrored my own practice in the way that it connected generations.”

Schenkelberg’s show, titled Currant, evolved from a discussion she had with The Sculpture Center’s executive director Grace Chin when she returned to town to teach at the Cleveland Institute of Art and was looking for studio space. In the show, she draws on her own past and family history weaves imagery of her own history with castings of plants, religious symbols, abandoned buildings, family dishware and tombstones in Lake View Cemetery, located just across the street from The Sculpture Center.

Opening at the same time is Baltimore early-career artist Sara Dittrich’s In slowness there is fullness. Both will open a reception on Friday October 21 and be on view through Friday December 16.
